Event description

Description

What does the Creative & Cultural Industries Workforce of the 21st Century look like?

We invite you to attend an afternoon symposium exploring how to achieve greater diversity & inclusion in the entry level workforce.

Tuesday 3rd July 2018

1.30pm – 5.30pm (lunch included)

mac: Cannon Hill Park, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B12 9QH

The symposium will explore approaches from policy, organisation and education perspectives. It will aim to move the conversation on from describing what the issues are to what we might start to do about them.

Speakers, chaired by Lara Ratnaraja, will include Charlotte Chung of the Creative Industries Federation, Sara Whybrew of Creative & Cultural Skills, Joel Blake of GBSLEP, Sufia Parkar of McCann & Bendy Ashfield of The Royal Opera House, Noel Dunne of Creative Alliance and Dr. Annette Naudin of Birmingham City University.

Creative Alliance will introduce Promote WBL - an online training course, developed with partner organisations from across six European countries. Promote WBL will support professionals working with young people to help them better understand Work Based Learning and how to prepare young people for it.

The symposium will conclude with an artist talk by Andrew Jackson regarding his exhibition From A Small Island.

A full timetable for the symposium will be distributed to all registered attendees shortly.

Please register early for this event as capacity is limited.
